Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) launch is imminent, as the phone gets FCC's approval
The most recent news that mentions the Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) is the listing of the phone at Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which puts it just one step away from its official unveil.
It appears that the US regulatory commission has just granted approval to the Samsung smartphone with model number SM-J530FM. Aside from the fact that the phone is manufactured in Korea, we learn nothing else from the listing at FCC.
Still, based on our previous reports, the Galaxy J5 (2017) should feature a 4.8-inch display with HD (720p) resolution, as well as a more than decent 12-megapixel rear-facing camera.
On the inside, Samsung is expected to include a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 processor, paired with 2GB RAM and 16GB expandable storage. We have yet to learn anything about the phone's battery and confirm the Galaxy J5 (2017) will ship with Android 7.0 Nougat on board.
Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) is likely to be introduced in the US in the coming weeks, but it might have different names depending on carriers.
